Child and Teen Therapy – Counseling and Therapists in Fredericksburg, VA

Mental health disorders in children are more common today than ever before. Parents need to be informed about what a mental health disorder is, who it effects and how it can be treated. Our child counselors are here to help you wade through the information and misconceptions out there and answer all your questions.

Thriveworks offers evening and weekend sessions, and accepts most major insurances. Also, new clients can often meet with a provider within the same week as scheduling. If you think your child could benefit from therapy, reach out today to schedule their first child therapy session at Thriveworks Fredericksburg.

What Is a Mental Health Disorder?

Mental health disorders can be defined as a behavior that negatively impacts a person’s ability to function to the same extent as their peers. When we apply this to a child or teen we can see that a broad range of behaviors may fall under this umbrella definition and it’s important to keep in mind the severity of the behavior.

A child who gets angry does not have disordered behavior, but a child who reacts to most situations with anger and is losing friends and falling behind in school because of it might. A child who is shy would not fit the definition, but a child who is socially withdrawn and experiences anxiety when faced with having to go out might.

Who Is Most at Risk of Suffering from a Mental Health Issue?

Just like with any other health concern there is no equation that tells us who will or will not be susceptible to suffering from a mental health issue in their lifetime. There are a few factors, though, that can increase the odds:

  • Family history of a mental health diagnosis
  • Environmental factors, such as trauma (either physical or emotional), stress or significant changes
  • Lifestyle choices, such as substance use

How Can I Help My Child?

The best outcomes for children or teens who are exhibiting the signs of a disorder is to seek treatment for them as soon as possible. Talking to a child counselor who has been trained in spotting the signs of illness and have the experience of working with different types of disorders can be your best source of information and support. They will talk you through the next steps and help create a plan to change the negative behavior.

Ann is a great listener, but she is also helpful with strategies for coping and communicating. She does more than "validate feelings."

I had the best luck with finding Krista! She helped me through so much. The doctors were quick to put me on several medications which made me feel worse with my anxiety and depression. So she helped me find different natural ways of coping. She had the best advice, it was honestly kind of a sad day when I realized I didn’t need her anymore. But I know who I’m going back to if I ever need someone to talk to again! Krista if you see this please know you helped save my life! Thank you!

I just want to say that since beginning counseling at Thriveworks that it has been the best choice I could have made for myself. I know everyone goes into counseling with their own ideas of what to expect from their counselors. But Thriveworks Fredericksburg has the most comfortable atmosphere, my counselor is Amazing, and the staff is professional every time I call to schedule my recurring appts! If you need help Thriveworks Fredericksburg is the place to call! All I can say is kudos to Aimee K! Thank you!!

Happy with everything except the 48 hr cancellation policy. 24hrs is pretty standard and more feasible when you have children.

I’m very relieved to have finally started therapy sessions with Robert. It’s taken me a while to make this move towards dealing with some outstanding hurts. I’m certain I’ve come to the right place.
